Squeezing performance from community code SPECFEM3D
“I’m looking forward to continuing my projects using this powerful system.”
The right compiler can make all the difference. By working with NeSI support staff and using one of NeSI's newer supercomputers, GNS Science seismologist Dr. Yoshihiro Kaneko found a way to run his earthquake simulations 2.5 times faster than before.
Operating since 2012, Pan supported the research of thousands of users across New Zealand.
With our newest platform, Mahuika, now available to all NeSI users, we said goodbye to Pan on 31 August 2018. For six years, Pan provided an outstanding service for New Zealand researchers, supporting a diverse set of domains from genomics to astrophysics and many in between.
